Day 2 post C2B and my legs are still really sore. One of my meetings today involved inspecting plant rooms, chillers and boilers which meant walking down steps, walking down more steps and then when I thought I couldnt walk down any more steps .... guess what?? I had to walk down more steps. My quads were screaming and I'm still wobbly overall after a period of sitting down.
I am suffering, I tell you.

So training of any form has been non-existent today. Mind you I walked heaps to various meetings and other stuff. I didnt feel idle at all. I have decided that I will row tomorrow morning. That shouldnt be too hard on my legs and my upper body could use the work. Plus a bit of cardio never goes astray in my opinion.

Once again food has been good. My vege intake is up as we are going on holidays soon and there were quite a few veges that needed finishing before we go. Seeing as I hate to throw good food out, I did a big stir fry in chicken stock and am well and truly seeing green for both lunch and dinner. I'm sure my system will thank me :-)

So I'm still considering some factors around my next goal. Last night I was thinking stuff through before I went to sleep. Now I have more info, I have more thinking. I'll just have to be careful that I dont lose too much precious sleep time.

Good night all


PS My official time (as printed in The Advertiser today) was 1:26:19. I was quicker than I thought!! LOL

Magda, after my first half marathon I couldn't walk for a week. I seriously thought about use of a cane there for awhile.

Happy healing.
Liz :)

Thanks Jaime-Lee. I have a love/hate relationship with running so the 12kms was a BIG challenge for me. Good luck with it after your jellybean pops out.

Doris I couldnt believe how sore my quads were. AND I TRAINED REGULARLY!! Glad its easing up now though :-)

Liz I got to the point yesterday where I just refused to go down into another dungeon (they're all the same!!) to save my quads from the stairs. Healing nicely now though.
